This is my 1884/1885 (based on the serial number) Waltham Stag Hunters-Case pocket watch with box hinge. It is 14k gold and multi-colored (white, yellow & pink). The mechanism Serial Number is 2444911 and is the "P.S. Bartlett" model. The watch was operational up until a couple of years ago when it suddenly stopped and, except for being non-operational, is in excellent condition throughout and I believe it can be easily and inexpensively repaired.
This watch was purchased by my Great-Grandfather and his initials "JDE" (John Daniel Eastlund) are inscribed on the front case cover, and a stag is on the back. Although some of these pictures are slightly out of focus, you can see that this is a beautiful watch.
The watch is 2 1/8" in diameter. The dial contains no imperfections that are visible; however, there is a slight chip in the crystal at the very edge where it meets the crystal retainer.
